Solid flight combat and Peanuts flare

User Rating: 8 | Snoopy vs. the Red Baron PSP
I started up the game, saw these familiar Peanuts characters doing familiar peanuts things and heard some solid Peanuts-ish voice acting, then got launched into a flight combat game that's surprisingly solid.

Once I got over the initial shock of Peanuts being combined with flight combat that was competent and not over-simplified, I started loving this game.

It's got some of the quirky humor of Peanuts in it, solid sound effects and voice acting, surprisingly good flight mechanics, and missions that are appropriate to the story line but still offer up a decent challenge.

I didn't feel like they did the greatest job translating the Peanuts characters to 3D, but that's really my only complaint. The 2D speech boxes, voice acting, and gameplay are all solid.

"Peanuts" and "Combat" seem a little strange together, but once you get over that, if you're a fan of either, this is a game worth playing.
